VERSES WRITTEN IN THE FOLIO ALBUM OF A LEARNED FRIEND. Friedrich Schiller

VERSES WRITTEN IN THE FOLIO ALBUM OF A LEARNED FRIEND

   Once wisdom dwelt in tomes of ponderous size,
    While friendship from a pocketbook would talk;
   But now that knowledge in small compass lies,
    And floats in almanacs, as light as cork,
   Courageous man, thou dost not hesitate
   To open for thy friends this house so great! 
   Hast thou no fear, I seriously would ask,
   That thou may’st thus their patience overtask?

Thank you for reading Friedrich Schiller "VERSES WRITTEN IN THE FOLIO ALBUM OF A LEARNED FRIEND"!
